JRE8-UX-000160 - Oracle JRE 8 must lock the option to enable users to check for revocation - deployment.security.revocation.check.locked
Certificates may be revoked due to improper issuance, compromise of the certificate, and failure to adhere to policy. Therefore, any certificate found revoked on a CRL or via Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) should not be trusted. Permitting execution of an applet published with a revoked certificate may result in spoofing, malware, system modification, invasion of privacy, and denial of service. Ensuring users cannot change these settings assures a more consistent security profile.
If the system is on the SIPRNet, this requirement is NA. Navigate to the system-level 'deployment.properties' file for JRE. /etc/.java/deployment/deployment.properties Add the key 'deployment.security.revocation.check=ALL_CERTIFICATES' to the deployment.properties file. Add the key 'deployment.security.revocation.check.locked' to the deployment.properties file.
